Timelines and Tribulations · 4:40am
Last week I said that I had intended to get the latest chapter of WCBB to Tencent before the evening was out, or at the latest Monday. Yeah... that was before my work decided that they wanted me to put in a ton of overtime. Money's good, but hobbies obviously suffer. That's alright- we went over the rough draft last night and should have something to show for it sometime this week unless something else comes up. This is why I USUALLY don't like to give timelines or dates- I almost always miss them. On the other side, it gives me something to push towards.
WCBB- As stated, latest chapter is in editing right now, and I'd like to see it up sometime this week or early next, we'll see what happens, but that's my goal. The next chapter is also written, and we've discussed it a little. I'm currently going over my own edits to make sure there's nothing egregious before sending it to Ten, but I think that it's going to be solid enough that it's not going to take too much more. I have no fear about that one also being out by the end of the month as 'promised'. As for the chapter after that, it's another case of we know what's going to be in it, and roughly how it's going to be structured, but I have yet to write a single word for it. This week while in the middle of edits on the other chapters I'll start. I tend to not like to start writing later chapters until I'm fairly certain what's in the ones before, saves a lot of going back and fixing stuff (which is one of the first things we had to do when Tencent joined in on this). Things are going well though, and I'm fairly happy.
Wild Wings- Nothing new to report. I'm sort of focused on ending the first major arc for WCBB and it's only when I'm really burnt out on that fic that I start writing chapters for WW. We'll see how it goes.
Other than that, I was in the #fimfiction IRC earlier today (well I end up there most days, some of the guys there are a hoot. Dicks, but a hoot) and while discussing the merits and faults of HiE one of the other guys came up with an idea for a fic. With his permission I'm totally going to write it, but not at the expense of the other two fics. It's going to be... different.
That's it for this week kids. Chapter 16 for WCBB is a lot of set-up and foreshadowing, and I'm looking forward to it going live. Hopefully by this time next week it'll be up.
